In no particular order... Wolf, Glassman, Dan John. Three kings if you ask me. I've only really had three S&C coaches per se, and those guys are it. I also like that gymnastic coach I met in Colorado way back when, but I forget his name (senility hit me early). Coach Sommer may be his name, but I'm probalby spelling it wrong.

I was never big on training books. Don't remember ever reading one. Not big on diet books either. Just figured I should eat lots of veggies and some healthy animals. Then again.. I'm not a trainer or coach, so I never really had to become an "expert" in those fields.

I did read Arnold's Encyclopdia of Body Buliding when I was a teenager, and obsessed with getting huuuuggeeee.

The only thing I have against Pavel is there's too much marketing in his books

Marekting is hard to escape from anyone out there nowadays...I like Pavel's concepts, take what I can use.....not buying all his stuff though. Carlos is good too...but he markets a ton also....like his books, some good ideas....nothing revolutionary but ideas here and there. I like anything that I can use for reference quickly to remember exercises and programs...as I can't store them all in my head....college and beer have killed too many brain cells.
